Ultimate Guide to Play Audible on Wear OS Smartwatch

By Adam Gorden Updated on August 7, 2023
Audible on smart watches? I just got a Samsung gear 4 and I use audible more than Spotify or any music app but I don't see any apps or extensions to allow me to access or control my books playback through my watch. Am I missing it or has Audible dropped the ball on this one?

When we are running or working out, what else can we listen to except music? Most people will choose audiobooks and Audible will be the best choice. While Apple Watch owners can benefit from the Audible app on their devices, the app is still not available on a number of popular smartwatches, such as those running on Wear OS.

Audible app is still one of the much-requested features on the Wear OS smartwatch. Google has long declared that Audible would take place for Pixel Watches. Following Google, Samsung broke the news that the Audible app will come soon on July 26th, 2023. But those are unpacked events and Audible is still not available on Wear OS smartwatches up till now. It's disappointing but we've set out to find alternative methods to put Audible on Wear OS for listening. Read on to embrace the following 2 ways!

Part 1. How to Access Audible on Wear OS via A Browser

In addition, there are some users who fail to access Audible Cloud Player on Wear OS due to a wrong password. Anyway, this is the most direct way to get Audible on Pixel Watch or other smartwatches running on Wear OS. Here's how.
